A small run of this journal published by the School of Living, “an educational organization that explores challenges of living, holds land in trust for present and future generations, promotes personal empowerment, and supports the development of just and sustainable communities” - School of Living website. Still operating today, the School of Living was founded in 1934 as a means to help people live fulfilling, self-sufficient lives. The mission expanded over the years to incorporate many social causes, such as the environment, community rights, and organic agriculture, among others. Articles in the present issues cover such topics as overuse of pesticides, homesteading tips, how to make children’s shoes, “liberated childbearing,” making cheese, gardening tips, “dyeing with plants,” refined vegetable oils, and a wonderful article entitled “Middle Aged Males in Communes.” It is a trove of advice and information on how to homestead, and would not be out of place on a Brooklyn coffee table today. A nice representative sampling of the literature of this social movement.
